Today’s small house is from Toronto, and is located in a neighbourhood known as ‘Tiny Town’. The house sits on a narrow lot measuring 14 foot by 70 foot, with the home itself having a footprint of 566 square foot. The lot’s previous home had been converted into a drug lab and was subsequently condemned and demolished, making way for this new, modern home.
The house was designed by LineBox Studio, and was built using inexpensive and recycled materials to help reduce costs. The main steel structure of the home can be seen throughout, with exposed heating ducts and plumbing giving the home a very industrial feel.
To enhance the perception of space the designers at LineBox included a vaulted ceiling to the roof and large windows which are orientated to take advantage of natural daylighting and ventilation. The floors are poured concrete and the walls are made of concrete block or painted drywall without baseboards.
